Murder echoes in Lok Sabha, BJP demands probe by NIA

BJP member Pralhad Joshi on Thursday demanded in the Lok Sabha that an NIA probe be ordered into the killing of party worker Deepak Rao, at Surathkal near Mangaluru.

Raising the issue during the Zero Hour, Joshi said as many as 22 members of the BJP and Hindu outfits have so far been murdered in Karnataka, during the Siddaramaiah regime. He accused the  Congress government of turning a blind eye to the killings as it "wants to adopt the Kerala model" of governance, where BJP members "are being targeted."

He said the NIA probe into the RSS worker Rudresh's murder in Bengaluru "has established" that the five people arrested in the case were the members of the PFI. "And it (PFI) is (an) affiliate of the political organisation - SDPI. In spite of the NIA clearly stating (this) in their charge sheet, the government has withdrawn a total of 175 cases against the workers of that organisation."
